Alpinestars SMX Plus Vented Boots For superior safety and freedom of movement, the 2011 Alpinestars SMX Plus Boot features an innovative Multi Link Control system and high modulus TPU protection integrated into the sleek profile of the boot. The inner Kevlar speed lacing closure and micro-adjustable ratchet fastener combine to ensure a comfortable, conforming fit on both the road and track. Features Forefoot laminated with shock absorbing open cell foam while the ankle area has a highly breathable lining for improved comfort. Alpinestars unique Multi Link Control System provides advanced support for the ankle, limiting hypertorsion, hyper-extension and hyper- flexion as well as providing additional impact protection to the ankle and Achilles. Wide, ventilated, heel counter extends to the ankle and is combined with a shock absorbing padded insert and self-molding foam ankle protectors. Replaceable heel slider and external side heel slider are positioned to dissipate shock and promote sliding during an accident. Newly designed, replaceable TPU toe slider with snap-in assembly provides more coverage around the toe area Perforated leather construction makes this boot ideal for warm weather conditions Note The image of white/black/yellow boot shows a non-perforated boot, the actual boot being sold will be perforated for airflow like the other colorways.

I gave these boots 5 stars because I think minus a few flaws, they are perfect.
1. The boots do not fit well with alpine stars track pants. The zipper will not zip all the way up. The boot sizing is perfect, so the top of the boot needs to be just a bit larger. Hoping this problem resolves itself as the boots break in.
2. If you over extend the linkage on the rear of the boot, it will get stuck. I had the linkages bent outward and awkward for a whole riding session before I realized it. You have to force it back into the cuff of the boot, and then it will function like normal again.
3. Needs a ratcheting action cuff lock, instead of a push to fit style locking mech. Pain when your all geared up.
Airflow is excellent on the vented boots. Extremely comfortable. You know you are wearing high end boots with these on. Inner boot a great feature and holds tight. Once on, these won't ever come off. Genius lacing system.
